Christ My Song - 1415

No strength have I, no strength at all
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

No strength have I, no strength at all.

"To them that have no might he increaseth strength."
(Isaiah 40,29)

1. No strength have I, no strength at all;
  I know it, and I feel it, too.
To meet a trial, great or small,
  is what I would not, dare not do.

2. The proof that I am weak is this,
  when left without support I fall.
The strength in which I stand is his,
  who to his saints is "All in all".

3. I do not grieve that thus it is,
  nor wish it otherwise to be.
The glory of the work is his;
  the benefit belongs to me.

4. I walk "by faith, and not by sight";
  by faith in him my living head.
His word it is that gives us light;
  it shines upon the path I tread.

5. That I do tread (if tread I do)
  the holy path, from him it is.
I know it, and I feel it too.
  The grace is his, the pow'r is his.

6. Supported by his arm of strength,
  though often tried and sorely pressed,
I hope, though weak and vile, at length
  to gain an everlasting rest.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 637.
